This week’s cheap phones: iPhone bargains, S7 price cuts and Sony prices slashed
Every week finder searches for the best smartphone deals in Australia. This week, the S7 gets cheaper again and the Xperia Z5 Premium continues to drop.
Apple iPhone 6s 16GB $839.00 ($1,079.00 Apple)
Apple’s just about to announce the iPhone 7, but that won’t be hitting store shelves for a couple of weeks if history is any guide. If you’re keen on a phone that will still get iOS updates for a while and want to save a fair amount on the iPhone 7’s likely price, DWI is selling the base model of Apple’s iPhone 6s for $240 off Apple’s current list price for that phone.
Samsung Galaxy S7 $759 ($1149.01 Samsung)
While we wait to assess the iPhone 7, Samsung dominates premium 2016 phones, making its goods an attractive proposition. All except for that asking price of course. Kogan’s current deal on the Galaxy S7 chops $390.01 from Samsung’s official selling price, not including shipping, making it an even better prospect.
Z5 Premium $559 ($1199 Sony)
Sony will be selling its new Sony Xperia XZ (https://www.finder.com.au/sony-announces-xperia-xz-and-xperia-x-compact) in Australia before the end of the year, with the X series having all but supplanted last year’s Z series phones. No, we don’t know why they’re going backwards in the alphabet either. That aside, this means that there are some serious bargains to be had on the still solid Z series phones. DWI is selling the Z5 Premium for $559, a $640 saving from Sony’s RRP.
